HD 7870 on windows 8

Hello,

Has anyoen successfully managed to get drivers working properly running the 7870 on Windows 8? I'm having no luck with either the Windows 8 preview drivers from AMD nor the 12.3 driver for Win7.

    It looks like Win7 12.3 drivers aren't actually providing any graphics acceleration at all in Win8 (the card is showing up as a generic display adapter in device manager), and the Win8 CP drivers don't support the 7xxx series yet.

    I'm just curious if anyone else has tried a 7xxx card with Win8. I can't be the only one.
  4. You can be... Win 8 is so not ready yet.
  5. have you downloaded the drivers for window 8 from amd websites??If not yet download it .

    Yes, I've tried the Windows 8 beta driver, looks like it doesn't support the 7xxx series cards yet. AMD does say an update is coming "in a few weeks."

    Was just curious if anyone has found a workaround yet.
